We must have the greatest respect for the young personality, realizing that in the soul of the adolescent great values are hidden, and that in the minds of these boys and girls, there lies all our hope of future progress and the judgment of ourselves and our times.

Chesapeake Montessori School is now embarking on a new venture to further serve the children of Annapolis: a community for young adolescents ages 12 to 14 years, grades 7 and 8.
The program is based on the developmental needs and characteristics of the young adolescent: physical, emotional, social, and cognitive. This includes work on the land and water, independent projects, and experience with business and economics.
Our next Open House for the entire campus is Sunday, January 24th, 2:00 - 4:00 pm. Please join us to speak with teachers, current parents, and our Head of School.
